Crestor (rosuvastatin calcium) is a prescription strength synthetic lipid-lowering agent manufactured and marketed by AstraZeneca U.S. It belongs to a class of drugs called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) that are designed to lower the bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides (TG) levels in the blood stream. The active ingredient in Crestor is Rosuvastatin calcium, and the inactive ingredients are: microcrystalline cellulose NF, lactose monohydrate NF, tribasic calcium phosphate NF, crospovidone NF, magnesium stearate NF, hypromellose NF, triacetin NF, titanium dioxide USP, yellow ferric oxide, and red ferric oxide NF. Crestor can be taken as a single dose at any time of day with or without food. However, taking it with food does decrease the absorption. The FDA-approved tablet doses for oral administration are 5, 10, 20, and 40 mg. The 80 mg dosage was not approved.
Crestor is used as an adjunct to a low-cholesterol diet and exercise program Crestor is thought to reduce elevated total Cholesterol (total-C), Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), apolipoprotein B (ApoB)-a membrane complex for LDL-C-and non-HDL-C cholesterol levels, as well triglyceride (TG) levels. It also tends to increase High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) (good cholesterol) in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia (heterozygous familial and nonfamilial) and mixed dyslipidemia (Fredrickson Type IIa and IIb). Additionally, as an adjunct to diet, Crestor is used for the treatment of patients with elevated serum TG levels (Fredrickson Type IV); and to reduce LDL-C, total-C, and ApoB in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia as an adjunct to other lipid-lowering treatments (e.g., LDL apheresis) or if such treatments are unavailable.
There are two types of cholesterol: LDL and HDL. Doctors call HDL the "Good Cholesterol" because your body needs it. Conversely, LDL is considered to be the "Bad Cholesterol" because high levels of LDL cholesterol are associated with conditions such as heart attack and stroke. Think of your liver as a cholesterol factory. It creates cholesterol at night while you are sleeping. Crestor works directly in the liver, inhibiting the enzyme that manufactures the bad cholesterol (LDL) while leaving the production of HDL alone. By inhibiting or blocking the action of this liver enzyme, your body's ability to produce LDL (bad) cholesterol is dramatically reduced. However, while Crestor does lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, it has a limited effect on HDL (good) cholesterol, and no effect on triglycerides (fats), an equally dangerous heart disease risk indicator.

AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, LP (the Crestor drug manufacturer) recommends that liver function tests be performed before someone begins Crestor therapy and at 12 weeks following both the initiation of therapy and any elevation of dose, and periodically (e.g., semiannually) thereafter. In most cases, people with vastly elevated liver enzymes should stop taking Crestor immediately.
You can make a claim against another party or parties if they are more at fault for your injuries than you are. In general, when a person is injured as a result of another person's negligence, the injured party may pursue a claim against the party or parties that caused the injuries. Any personal injury case depends on liability, damages, and whether or not you can collect from the negligent party or parties. Delaware follows the doctrine of modified comparative negligence. Under this doctrine, a claimant's action is not barred unless his negligence exceeds the combined negligence of all defendants, but the claimant's recovery is diminished in proportion to his degree of negligence.

Personal injury law attempts to cover all areas and types of injuries suffered by individuals. Some of the most common areas are automobile accidents, premise liability, medical malpractice, and product liability, among others. Whether or not you are entitled to compensation may depend on the type of accident that caused the injury.
Absolutely. There have been many successful class actions brought by consumers. Signs of consumer fraud include:

  • Misrepresentations regarding a product or a service.
  • Products or services that just don`t work as they should.
  • Hidden fees or charges, or unexpected billing surprises.
  • Products that wear out early.
  • Use of the product results in injury.

Medical Questions

There are two basic types of implants: saline filled and silicone gel-filled breast implants. Both types have the same basic type of outer envelope made of a solid, rubber-like form of silicone called an elastomer.

Saline filled implants – These implants are made of an elastomer silicone envelope, which is surgically implanted under your tissues, and then filled with sterile saline, a salt-water solution, through a valve.

Silicone gel-filled implants – These implants are made of an elastomer envelope pre-filled (prior to surgery) with a clear, sticky, thick jellylike form of silicone that approximates the consistency of breast tissue. Silicone gel implants come in many sizes. The size used depends on the amount of augmentation desired or the size the reconstructed breast is to be.

Presently, saline filled implants are available to all patients from only the Mentor Corporation and McGhan Medical. Silicone gel-filled breast implants are available to women through two FDA-approved studies, an adjunct study and an investigational device exemptions (IDE) study.
LASIK (Laser Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis) is an FDA-approved, surgical procedure used to correct human vision. It can effectively repair nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism in a few quick steps. The technical procedure starts with a microkeratome that creates a thin flap in the cornea. Next, this tiny flap is folded back, and the excimer laser resurfaces the cornea in order to correct the given problem. Finally, the corneal flap is replaced, and it will re-adhere in about two to three minutes.

BoTox is the brand name of botulinum toxin type A, a purified and diluted substance produced by the bacteria that causes botulism. BoTox was approved by the FDA in 1989, and it is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles in an individual's face. When injected into the skin, BoTox halts the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles, eliminating the appearance of facial lines. This procedure usually lasts from four to six months.
Liposuction is the surgical removal (by way of suctioning or vacuuming) of fatty tissue from beneath the surface of the skin. It is performed to reduce the mass in any area of the human body.
Holistic Medicine can be defined as "whole person health care." Holistic practitioners strive to treat their patients as whole individuals with emotional, psychological, spiritual, social, and physical needs. By recognizing health and illness at these different levels, holistic practitioners believe they can give effective health care while helping individuals utilize their own abilities for self-healing.
